Instructors
Biographies and photographs of individuals who instruct NADCA's courses and in-plant conferences. An excellent introduction to the caliber of people NADCA utilizes for its education programs.

Local Courses
There are NADCA education and training chapters located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Heat Treatment and Subsequent Process Steps 08/21/2018 The focus of this webinar is on heat treatment of aluminum high integrity die castings. Heat treatment is the final step in determining the mechanical properties of a casting. After having presented and discussed alloys, melting/melt treatment/transfer, and die casting process technologies required in order to make heat treatable die castings, the theory of heat treatment of aluminum alloys, available tempers, and best practices for thin walled structural die castings are presented (where distortion and blistering can be big issues when heat treating them). The webinar will also briefly describe other subsequent process steps and best practices for structural high integrity die castings. Add to Calendar

    The Market, Applications and Commercial Aspects of High Inte 08/22/2018 The Market, Applications and Commercial Aspects of High Integrity Die Casting - In this webinar the very rapidly growing market for high integrity die castings is presented, and applications in the various market segments shown and discussed. The main growth sector is of course automotive, where we can see a dramatically increasing number of car body applications like shock towers, but this is not the only market segment where structural high integrity die castings are increasingly being used, we can find them more and more in motorcycles, recreational vehicles and even in boats. Alloys for these castings are typically primary alloys bought and sold based on different indices than secondary alloys, the value chain is very different, and therefore commercial challenges need to be addressed appropriately and will be discussed in this webinar.

    Process Monitoring Class in North Carolina 09/12/2018 This course is designed for the die casting employee, engineer, or manager who has a basic understanding and some experience using process monitoring and control systems and would like to gain a more thorough understanding. The course will help the die casting employee understand the relationship between the data received from the process monitoring system and product quality. It will also provide guidelines on the uses of process control to maintain product quality. Although, die casting concepts are covered in detail, no significant mathematical skill or process experience is required. Add to Calendar
